I have always wanted one as a girl, and my dad used to tease me telling me he knew where to buy them. He worked in a graphic design company in the late 80s and early 90s in North Sydney in the days of the long lunches darling and I think the type cabinets and drawers were relatively easy to find and buy.
I guess if I wanted one now I could buy one on ebay here
it is on sale for $AU 475 (pictured below) and on sale in Adelaide. A city that is to the south and west of Sydney.
Here is what Poppalina does with her her type cabinet, use it to store bits and bobs, what a great idea, so creative so colorful! I wonder what I would keep in mine, if i had one, maybe bits of fossil, vintage buttons, pencils, shells.....
